.999 Fine Silver & Burmese Ruby Pendant
Divine 2 1/2 x 1 3/4 .999FS shadowbox heart pendant with a bezel set genuine 21.25 Burmese Ruby. Of course, this is not a Maharaja's collection quality ruby obviously at this price, but it's very nice and has great color. Ruby alone measures 3/4 x 5/8 . Shadow box back and bale are both stamped using vintage Navajo stamps I purchased a pawn shop in Santa Fe some years ago and oxidized. Face of the pendant has been sanded to a matte finish. Right now I'm into non-shiny silver. Pendant is suspended from a 18" 7mm Navajo handmade distressed sterling seamed bead chain. Sterling hook and loop closure. I can also offer another option: Instead of the sterling bead chain, I can mount the pendant on and 18" 6mm dove grey fresh water pearl chain. See photo #5 for an indication as to what that might look like. Your choice, same price. Both layers of silver that comprise the shadow box are 3mm each. It's a hefty piece. The bale is oversized to accommodate up to 8mm beads or pearls.
